We exist in a North American bubble, where our teams, sports, movies and celebrity are the most coveted and important, but why is that? What does the rest of the world think? Needless to say outside of our borders there is a big world, that doesn’t revolve around King James.
To get more specific, we speak to Jaron Blossomgame, former Cleveland Cavalier, current starter for the Ratiopharm Ulm in the EuroCup, and host of the “Beyond the Press” podcast. Jaron gives us his backstory from being in the NBA to now playing overseas and the positives that have come along with it. Why is the hardest level of play, not the most prestigious? We learn about his show “Beyond the Press” and since it’s been a while, we end up giving some Kobe love.
Trish and Kurt start off the show with the recent press involving Montreal Canadiens superstar goalie Carey Price, and forward Jonathan Drouin, both of whom are on leave for Non-Covid related illnesses and both who have used their platforms to promote the importance of looking after your mental health; we get into the NBA preseason, and the most recent Kyrie Irving new; and get caught up on what’s new here at the Tidal League Podcast Network.
